  • I got my dresses at JCPenney. If your not a shy girl get something that accents your boobs just a little enough to distract from any arm pudge (thats what I did any way not that you have arm pudge)

  • I'd recommend a good quality wedding dress shop. I got my very nicest gown at one. They fit beautifully, and the salespeople will be able to advise you what goes best with your figure type.

  • I got my dress for $100.00 (I am a size 16) from craigslist because the girl bought it and then they broke up it was never worn the tags were still on it....that might be a way to go

  • You don't have to be itty bitty to look like a princess on your wedding day! A nice A-line dress is flattering on any shape. I have a friend, who is GORGEOUS and has excellent style btw, who wears around that size. She swears that the halter-top style top is the most flattering on her. If you don't want to spend a lot, try David's Bridal. If you go with the more simple styles then you can find something very elegant for a great price. Just be careful because they get your email address and you home address and they sell it to a whole bunch of people for advertising. That's how David's actually make all of their money and why their dresses are so inexpensive.
